Even the most experienced sales executives face unknown challenges when venturing into international markets. How people buy in one country is not always how they do it elsewhere. Therefore, adapting your proven sales techniques is the only way forward when selling products and services abroad.
To be truly successful around the world, you will have to develop a broad variety of sales strategies to match the different business cultures you are selling in. Across borders, each client or customer’s norms of doing business – from trust-building to communication style to decision-making – define the way sales are made.

Book a session with one of our experienced international sales coaches to dive deep into the cultural context of the countries you are selling in.
